Broen Interior Design ApS, Independent Designer
2019 – 2020
The past 2 years, I have developed the Squiggle lamp collection. I’ve been wearing all the hats in the process. Ie, product development, website, photography, customer database, sales, social media, production and much more. We launched the collection on Kickstarter 19 Feb. In the middle of the campaign, the corona virus hit. But we sold 50 lamps and got confirmation that there is demand for Squiggle.
Sund Søvn ApS, Independent Salesman
2014 – 2019
Based on a van, I started Sund Søvn Container Salg. Imports mattresses and beds from Poland and sells them from 5 containers in Nordhavnen via Den Blå Avis. I managed to create a business, but when FB Marketplace launched, customers are pulled away from DBA and the business is undermined. I learned a lot about sellling and decided to it was time to go back to my passion of producing and selling design.

In collaboration with investors, I develop a collection of lamps. We launch in September 2008. We get first customers, but two weeks later the financial crisis hits and we put the project on hold.
The product are still a valuable part of our collection.
Broen Design A/S, Independent Designer
2002 – 2005
As a self-taught designer I begin my own company with a collection of table top products. After two years of development, where I spend most of the time on the floor in a metal workshop, Broen Design A/S is launched in 2005. We manage to exhibit at a number of fairs, including in New York, where we get customers on Beverly Hills Boulevard, Fifth Avenune and from most of the world. We had to abandon the company after a faulty delivery.
